5 Gifts To Leave For Your Old Home’s New Owners

Selling a home is an emotional event. You are leaving behind a house filled with memories and venturing off to someplace new. The people buying your home are excited to create their own memories in a home that you loved for so many years. Welcome them with a thoughtful gift that will leave a lasting impression.

Here are some ideas for gifts to leave for your home’s new owners.

  1. Personalized Key Rings:Mark this milestone in the new owners’ lives by giving them a special key ring. Engrave it with their initials, the date of the move, or even a special message from you. Not only is this thoughtful, but it’s a practical gift as well.
  1. Mailing labels and stationery:Personalized gifts go a long way. Create mailing labels with the owners’ names and new addresses; if you want to go the extra mile, create personalized stationery for them as well. Leave these paper gifts on the kitchen counter with a nice note to surprise the owners.

What is a Seller's Market?

Spring has sprung and the real estate market is heating up! Houses are selling fast, leaving fewer homes for buyers to fight over. This is called a seller's market. Read on for a definition of this real estate term:

The seller's market is the term given to a market where the seller has the upper hand. This might happen when there are few good homes available in a certain area. It might also mean that the area is a hot one right now for potential buyers. The seller's market is one where a seller might receive a lot of interest from multiple buyers on any given listing. The seller might be able to get multiple bids and offers on a given property. These markets usually lead to higher sale prices on homes and can be difficult for interested buyers. Seller's markets are contrasted with a buyer's market, which occurs when there are very few buyers and a host of acceptable properties in an area. As a buyer, you would much rather do your bidding in a buyer's market than a seller's market, where the seller has all of the control.

If you are thinking of listing your home the time couldn't be better! Give our office a call today to speak with a dedicated agent and get your home listed during this HOT market! And if you're thinking of buying, don't wait! Our agents can start showing you properties and guide you through making an offer.
